Magnificent! Guide Dave was amazing and made us feel the history and legacy! The restrictions by the city limit how much you can see on any given tour - only downside!

Our tour guide Jeremy was very nice and the carriage was comfortable except we got a bit too much sun exposure. However we didn’t know ahead of time there is a lottery drawing which determines which district you will visit. That was disappointing a bit. 😉

It was just ok. It would have been great to be able to stop here and there to take pictures. Not get out but not just keep driving. The history info was mediocre more dates house were built etc. the group tour guide seemed much more knowledgeable as he passed us and we kind of wished we had done the group tour.
